I Am a Night Owl

    Last night I made a post about how i'm trying

    to form better sleeping habits and I made a night time / sleep schedule. I stuck to it last night and tested it out - and it worked better then I thought it was going to go for the first time! I got about 7 hours of sleep, and I feel so refreshed this morning. Better then I've...

    I embrace this. I am tired of being told I have

    to work at certain hours and get up at a certain time because that's what's socially acceptable. If other people don't get the magic of night time that's fine, more for the minority of us. Tired of being pc.

    I love the tranquility of the nighttime.

    Everything just seems so peaceful. Sometimes I find myself sneaking out in the middle of the night just to go for a walk outside. (Only for my brother to blow up my phone texting me to come back inside) My favorite is when there's a full moon and it just kinda glows and lights...

    With course, I make sure I'm asleep by 12am now

    so I don't go batshit crazy. It was a big adjustment and I still accidentally lose track of time on weekends. I feel so sad having to go to sleep early but.. I forced myself to sleep at 3am one weekend because I remembered the sound of waking birds and the feeling of going to...

    After 10+ years of working second

    and third shift jobs, I can't imagine being awake at any other time. I get more done between 2 am and 6 am than most people in an entire 8 hour workday. Unconventional like me!!

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    No matter how much I try to maintain a sensible

    sleep schedule, I'm up until 3. Even when I have to get up at 7 the next day for work! You'd think I'd get better at this now that I'm like a real adult or something.It doesn't help I have this fluffy little brat bugging me every morning...

    I seriously don't like the daytime

    or mostly mornings. There is so much activity going on in the day but at night, it's calm and everyone is asleep. I get to do lots of stuff at night like homework, drawing, listening to music, on the computer, and especially sleeping. But school nights are terrible. You got to...

    I like to stay up late,

    because there is so much quiet, and I get to watch some shows or movies without being bothered by people during the day or the loud noises during the day,

    Dormant in the day and awake at night,

    They call me a night owl, a vampire, and a few other names in all good fun. I've suffered with chronic insomnia for as long as I can remember. People use the term "Night Owl" as a loose term, but I really am one lol. My brain never sleeps and sleeping pills, no matter how many I...

    Nearly a quarter of four in the morning,

    and I'm awake. Being awake in the middle of the night is a lot more fun when you have more than your thoughts to keep you company!!

    Obviously. It's 2 am

    and I am wide awake. My "accidental" nap I had at 10 pm probably didn't help thingz much. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one up at this hour... The silence is nice, but trying to sleep during the noisy day stinks most days.

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...
